Canvassers working for Pendle Council have begun delivering electoral registration forms to homes across Pendle.
The information from these forms will be included in next year’s Register of Electors, so you should check them as soon as possible to make sure you don’t lose your right to vote.
Gillian Turpin, Pendle Council’s Elections & Registration Manager, said: “The electoral canvass is part of the annual voter registration process.
“Every year you must check that your details are correct on the form and update them if necessary.
“If you don’t, you risk losing your right to vote.
“When you get your electoral registration form, you need to check that the details on it about the people who live at your address are all correct.
“If so, you can let us know by calling a freephone number, sending a text message or visiting the website – details of these are printed on the forms.
“It couldn’t be more convenient as telephone, text and internet registration are all available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“Alternatively, you can use the more traditional method of signing and returning the form in the post.
“However, if you find any incorrect details on the form or you need to add or delete a name, you have to write in the changes, sign the form and return it to us by post. You don’t need a stamp.”
If your name is not included in the register, you will not be able to vote in elections.
